Eight-year winner of “Best in Client Satisfaction” by Seattle Magazine and full time Realtor on Bainbridge Island for over twenty years, you can rely on my knowledge, skill and dedicated effort to provide you with exceptional service throughout your real estate transaction. At the core of my business are strong Island values. I am passionate about living in a community with a solid commitment to education, the environment, and a wholesome quality of life. Having previously lived and worked in Europe and other regions of the United States, I have traveled extensively with my children and apply that global perspective to my client’s own unique relocation needs. My background in marine environmental science gives me a strong understanding of the issues special to the sale and purchase of properties located on an Island.

I have a proven track record of constantly seeking out new opportunities to market my listings in unique and innovative ways. I listen carefully to my client’s needs and stay on top of the Bainbridge Island market by watching the inventory closely. My clients love my approach because they experience first hand my warm, professional commitment as I guide them through their buying or selling process with integrity and enthusiasm. This has secured for me a loyal following of satisfied clients and customers.

I stay involved with community causes such as serving on the founding board of the Bainbridge Island Wooden Boat Festival, US Sailing’s Safety at Sea Seminars, The Schooner Martha Foundation, Bainbridge Island School Foundation, Madrona Waldorf School, Bloedel Reserve, and Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce and others. I am a home building/remodeling enthusiast, proud mother of two grown children, an avid sailor, dog lover, and I stay active with yoga, hiking, kayaking and spending as much time outside as possible.

Whether you are relocating, investing or just moving next door, I would welcome the opportunity to serve your real estate needs.
